How To Change When Change Is Hard — 3 Science-Backed Steps To Create Lasting Change

No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve achieved, if you’re anything like 99.9999% of people on this planet, it’s likely that you’ve got at least one thing about your life that you’d like to change… 

Maybe you want to get up an hour earlier to go out for a jog before you head out for work.

Maybe you want to take your business to the next level.

Maybe you want to find a meaningful relationship

Regardless of what you want to change in life, one thing is clear: 

Change requires action. 

To change anything in life, we’ve gotta be willing to tweak our approach/actions/behavior until we get the results what we want…

But if it’s as simple as that, then why’s change so difficult to achieve? Why do so few of us succeed at it? And what does it really take to make lasting changes in life? 

The real key to creating lasting changes of any kind require that we understand three specific rules about change, which we’ll be looking at in today’s episode — which was inspired by a great book called Switch by Chip and Dan Heath.
